DHR Communications is delighted to announce that we have been named media partner of the upcoming major global health conference, the GETHealth Summit, which will take place in Dublin on Thursday 13th and Friday 14th November, 2014.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that there is a global shortage of almost 4.3 million doctors, midwives, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, as well as a shortage of high-quality training. However, the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) can help to overcome those challenges.
The GETHealth Summit aims to bring together stakeholders to generate fresh knowledge, partnerships and ideas that can address this global health worker shortage, through the use of digital media and ICTs.
As official media partner, DHR will be providing PR support in the run up to the prestigious global conference. There is a stellar line up of speakers including government ministers, senior executives, leading academics and thought leaders from the fields of healthcare, technology, research, academia and international development.
This year’s conference is a collaboration between iHeed and the Johns Hopkins Center for Clinical Global Health Education (CCGHE), building on from two very successful events which were held in 2013; GETHealth Summit, which took place at the United Nations in New York, and mHealthEd, which took place at the Mansion House, Dublin.
These events both attracted great publicity and support from organisations including: the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the UN Office for Partnership, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United States Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
